And this is why they don't let Governors run schools.

Governor Susana Martinez has some cash burning a hole in her pocket, link. She proposes re-appropriating the half million dollars a year she is generating by having sold the state jet, and

"... taking that same amount of money and buy every New Mexico first grader a reading book of their very own."
A book first graders can't read.

Hell, third graders can't read; isn't that her whole point?

You can't teach a non-reader to read by buying them a book.
A half-million dollars a year can be put to better use.

Still nothing from the Guvnor,
or from her Public Education
Secretary Hanna Skandera,
about the curving they had
to do, link, to the grades
they gave public schools,
to avoid the public revolt
the un-spun truth would
have created.
